Fawns are dropping in our area now.  I did go out last week with a electronic call and a motion decoy.  Nothing but will try again early next week.  Full moon Sunday so maybe a 4am calling session may work.  Anybody ever shoot that Hevi-Shot Dead Coyote load?? Of course I'd have to get it mail order but not sure of the recommended choke.
After seeing this post may consider wearing a motorcycle helmet.  LOL.  Sorta.
I dropped one last year at around 45 yds with #7 Fed Heavyweights.  It was checking out my calling looking for a meal,but got a meal of heavy 7s instead.

Oh man, I’ve had the rabies shots and don’t envy you. Look at the positive though, you’ll be catching bats and coons by hand with reckless abandon :-)

Man that's exactly what I told the Dr! I said I can get right in a good bay up with the hounds now I'm up to date on shots just like them

I shot the coyote but never went and picked him up. I started back to the truck when I figured out my head was bleeding but didn't know how bad, so I wasn't worried about him the next day. And I'm 99.9% sure he didn't have rabies that slight movement caught his attention. As soon as he was on me he'd jumped back off and was hauling butt
I suppose the reason it would have occurred to me, is that I got bitten by a mouse when I was four...  I only have vague memories (but I do remember some of it)…

The mouse bit me, and died soon after (probably due to trauma from my reaction after being bitten)…   They were apparently able to test the mouse satisfactorily enough that I did not have to get the shots...

I know if I ever get bitten by a critter, and am able to kill it, it is going with me to my doctor...  Immediately.
Did I do that?

Thanks -  Hevi Coyote is OO buck.  I can get OO buck a lot cheaper than $30 a box.  Going that way.  Be at least Wednesday before I can get out.  Still plenty of moon so we'll see.  Highs now 92 where I'm going so it will be an early in early out.  Whew.

My Deacon had to remove an A/C unit from a window and got bit by a bat and had to go through the shots as well.
